I’m taking a break. I’m not sure for how long.
I’ve got too many things happening right now to be able to reflect well enough here.
Nancy’s mom is pretty sick. Nancy’s been there a lot during the past five months. We’re guessing that there isn’t much time left. Her dad is doing well for an 89-year-old with his own health struggles.
My mom’s living with Alzheimer’s. She still knows us. She just doesn’t know when and where very well.
I’m teaching a college class for the first time in twenty years. Online.
I’m getting ready for an overseas trip in March. It involves some preparation now. (If you want to know more, write to me. I’ll tell you off blog.)
I’ve started too many writing and mentoring projects that are going unfinished.
If I were talking to someone else, I would say “What can you take a break from, just to catch your breath?” And the answer is that I need to take a break from a daily deadline. And not setting a return date helps me have that break.
Paul Merrill has a great post for this Friday. And then I’ll be back sometime.
Thank you for your encouragement and prayer and presence.
With deep affection,
